Now, there’s a headline I never thought I’d write. Phil Anselmo, the man who fronted Pantera and fronts Down, will — as a press release states — “dissect” flicks during a 2011 SXSW Film Festival panel called “Reel Murder: From Crime Scene to Big Screen.”
The panel’s been organized by MetalSucks scribe and best-selling true crime author Corey Mitchell and is scheduled for March 15, 2011. I’ve been thinking I should hit SXSW this year. But then I remember I lost my map, which guides one to the magical, mystical money tree, and then I just frown. Maybe I can organize a panel, and SXSW will fly me down; I can crash with a friend, I just need the plane ticket. Here’s my panel: “Real Chicks: From The Show to The Bus.” We could have some of metal’s horniest musicians talk about groupie action. No?
Phil Anselmo, who demands to be addressed like a white man, is on the panel, as he is a huge supporter of true crime-based films and composed the soundtrack to the underground cult classic “The Manson Family.” Nice get.
The panel will also boast Hart D. Fisher, the “most dangerous man in America” and notorious director of the indie serial killer feature “The Garbage Man;” Ami Canaan Mann, who sprung from the loins of director Michael Mann and is a rising new director in her own right; director John McNaughton, the man behind “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer;” and Corey, who penned the books “Pure Murder” and “Savage Son.”
